Stage 2 Evaluation - Detailed School Assessment
- Read Stage 2 Evaluation (pdf)
The current enrolment at Champlain Heights Annex is 88 students and its capacity utilization is 85%. Champlain Heights Elementary is operating at 56% capacity and can accommodate the students from the annex.
The topography and terrain of the Champlain Heights catchment area makes travel routes and distances difficult for many students in the southern portion of the catchment area.
Future development in the East Fraser Lands is expected to bring significant enrolment increases to this area.
The existing StrongStart program would need to be relocated to another school site.
Students currently attending Champlain Heights Annex can be accommodated within Champlain Heights Elementary without any adjustments to catchment boundaries. The need for the annex will be revisited when the first phase East Fraser Lands residential developments are occupied over the next 5 to 10 years.
Based on the Stage 2 Evaluation, it is recommended that Champlain Heights Annex be advanced to the public consultation phase.
